With plenty of wagging tails, more than two dozen neglected dogs have a new home at the Logan County Humane Society.
"When we first got here and started feeding them they just were going at each other trying to get the food, but now they calmed down. They've actually put on some weight and they look a lot better," says shelter director Kathy Maddox.
The changes in the dogs are dramatic. In just a week and a half a once chained, malnourished dog, is now healthy and active.
26 neglected dogs were rescued from a home in Logan County after an anonymous tip.
It's still a long road ahead for the rescued animals. Two of the dogs have tested positive for heart worms. A possible deadly condition.
"Yeah it's very serious and very expensive to treat but we feel confident we are going to be able to save them. I mean it's not a guarantee it could go either way, but we are definitely going to do our best," says Maddox.
In an interview with the homeowner accused of animal neglect from March 1, Sammy Boyd told WBKO the amount of dogs he had wasn't a problem.
"Instead of taking them to the animal shelter and they turn them down they need a place where it's a little bigger, better area. The state needs to step in and make a bigger place for them," said Boyd.
But the humane society disagrees.
"This is obviously the best place for those dogs. You've seen the condition they were in. We do a good job here. We do the best we can and everybody is fed well and taken care of and treats handed out. I just don't agree with him," says Maddox.
The rescued dogs, which include two litters of puppies, will remain at the Humane Society for a few more weeks before they can be adopted by the public.
A fund has been setup for the rescued animals. To learn more visit the Logan County Humane Society website by clicking the link below.
